We are excited to announce our new service of robotic surgery with the da Vinci Surgery System! On January 5, 2021 we performed two; an Inguinal Hernia Repair with Dr. Kern and a Cholecystectomy with Dr. Jenabzadeh. Utilizing a robot vs. traditional open surgery results in less pain and a faster recovery for our patients. Congratulations to the NMASC team for this accomplishment!
Since an early age, Dr. Fisher knew he was interested in medicine. As a surgeon, he appreciates “that we often don’t know what we have until it’s gone. When we lose a vital function such as the ability to hear, smell, breathe, taste, speak or swallow, it is incredibly rewarding to help a patient regain that function.” Welcome!
